Abstract [en]

Den du är, inte den du förväntas vara – en kvalitativ studie av läroböcker i religionskunskap och dess behandling av kön, sexualitet och etnicitet (Who you are, not who you are expected to be - a qualitative studie of textbooks in religious studies and the treatment of gender, sexuality and ethnicithy) is a qualitative study with the primary focus to examine textbooks as a resource for the teacher. Focus is put on how gender, sexuality and ethnicity is portrayed in textbooks for religious studies in upper secondary school. The textbooks are also examined as a resource based on their usefulness. To do this a hermeneutic approach was taken and the textbooks were studied based on the knowledge they provided and their readability. The results from this study show that most textsbooks were usable when taking both information and structure in regard, however, one of these textsbooks showed indications towards a more subjective portraying of gender, sexuality and ethnicity which affected the usefulness of that text.
